Which tools are you using for remote usability testing and unmoderated user testing?

Hello everyone,

We're shopping for an unmoderated user testing tool and I'd like to know which tool you would recommend.

There are several tools out there... I found Solidify app (for prototyping test) by ZURB. Anyone using it? If so, how do you rate it as usefull in terms of detecting early usability problems in the prototype or mockup? If it has helped you, how?

If you has used other tools, how'd you rate it (pros xs cons)? 

Thanks.

Feedback on the online master degree program in HCI at DePaul universities

Hey guys!

I recently learnt that DePaul university, Chicago is offering the online course in HCI.

Can anyone tell me if these online courses are equally good as the on campus courses. Would I be losing on anything if I choose to take the online study option?

How do I start a career in IxD? (already have bachelor's, but not in design)

Hi IxDAers,

What would you recommend for someone interested in getting started with interaction design, but who already has their bachelor's?

My plan was to make a website and gradually fill it through designing my own projects (or volunteering if I can find something nearby), but first I wanted to know if there was a better way of going about this.

If it's relevant, I have degrees in Cognitive Science and Studio Art, can teach myself programming languages, and have some experience with counseling and scientific research.

privacy of the user.

*Sub-use case/scenario:* The user has mistyped their password while logging
in.
*Associated features: *Login screen, password security feedback, lost
password functionality, error feedback system.
*Associated users/actors: *Child, parent, administrator

We are developi

Mega Drop-Down Navigation menus

Hi all,

I’m putting together some recommendations for using mega drop-down
navigation.

http://www.useit.com/alertbox/mega-dropdown-menus.html

I’m interested in the opinion of the iXDA list on whether the
top-level navigation items should lead to pathway (or landing) pages,
or whether they can simply act as non-hyperlink triggers to the
drop-down (so no hand cursor)?

Also, if there is no pathway page, how should this impact breadcrumb
trails?

For instance:

Home > Sports > Windsurfing

ID vs email address

The email address as user id is becoming the preferred way in my
opinion.

Pros:
an email address is unique;
an email address is easy to remember;
in many cases the system requires the email address also for sending
messages.

Cons:
still not everyone has an email address;
an email address may change over time.

Did you consider OpenID?
